Since May 25, 2018, the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) is in effect, reviewing how the personal data of EU citizens is being collected and shared. With TalentLyft, you can set up your GDPR settings to be 100% GDPR compliant.

How does TalentLyft help?

You can set up your GDPR account settings, track the GDPR consents of your candidates, and delete/anonymize candidates in your system.

Candidates will also be given the freedom to request an update of their personal data, extend or withdraw their consents, and to delete their data from your candidate database through the Candidate portal. All of this is supported by TalentLyft.

The first thing to do is to familiarize yourself with your duties and responsibilities toward your candidates, as well as set up your GDPR settings in TalentLyft. It will be easier if you already have a data protection officer or a legal advisor that could help you with setting up your TalentLyft GDPR settings.

Remember, you are not alone in this. We will help as much as we can. Here is the link to the official regulation document, published in the Official Journal of the European Union.

  1. To make your TalentLyft account GDPR compliant, the first thing to do is to enable and set up the GDPR settings.

  2. After you have enabled and modified your GDPR settings, we would advise you to familiarize yourself with how these settings are applied to different candidates, depending on how their profiles were added to the system.

3. After you have set up your account’s GDPR settings and familiarized yourself with how it applies to each candidate, depending on how they were added to the system, you should start tracking and deleting candidates that should be deleted from your system according to GDPR.
